It has some appeal as an End of an Era news photo.
But seeing it once is about enough as white shrink wrap is not that photogenic.

To be honest, the ugly ads on the cars kill it for me. Sometimes the lens cap is best left in place. :(

The tall buildings in the distance of the Flickr photo are not very sharp. Maybe the screener wanted them sharper? Besides that, they all lean left. Could "going away" be another issue?

As with any photo, if I choose to save it, it will be edited to my taste.:-)

Hmmm...those same "weeds" didn't get this one rejected. Maybe they thought one of this scene was enough???

Passionate disliker of large signatures and watermarks here. Did Dennis really need to place his signature atop the equipment where the viewer can't help but find it a distraction?

Well...
As this posts, a front-coupled shot of stored UP power is Top of 24 with 6800+ views. Looks like naysayers will just have to scroll past these shots. :lol:

Freeman Hubbard and Virgil Staff- what a team that was.

Something like this, perhaps? I was undecided about reducing the blue of the snow, but I like it better with less blue.

Windmills are eyesores and a blight on the landscape (IMO).
But I'll try to be objective. My first impression was "soft overall", and an enlargement confirmed that.

Iona Island: Both park and RR police consider Iona Island to be "a hangout for troublemakers". And that's even if the visitor does not stray from the one public road that leads to the grade crossing.

LOL!
That immediately reminded me of Railroad Magazine boss Freeman Hubbard's infatuation with those. Especially by one photographer whose name I don't recall at the moment.

Yeah, you can find those artifacts if you really, really take a close look at the photo.
Still, I'll take this one over the soft and the leaning photos that have been accepted recently. :roll:

FWIW, I like them, especially the first one! Where was it taken?

Some of them would benefit from highlight/shadow/contrast tweaking.

More suitable for Facebook, IMO. :twisted:

Just for fun, I googled "mundane railroad pictures". About half the results were better than the shot in the crosshairs! Even a few worth saving.

So the square format* Waffle House sign gets in, and this better shot gets the boot.
I wonder if it was the same screener. :roll:

This one was a tossup. Recently they accepted a shot of a dirty weathered engine with the sun so high that the trucks were nearly invisible. [Did Elite help it get on? Who knows? :twisted:]
